Acquired brain injuries result from damage to the brain (e.g. motor vehicle accident, birth trauma etc.). Such damage can result in temporary, prolonged or permanent impairments in cognitive, emotional, behavioural, or physical functioning.
Symptoms of an acquired brain injury may vary depending on the individual, as well as the severity and area of the damage. As a result of such an injury, children may experience difficulties with:
- Receptive Language
- Expressive Language
- Fluency (Stuttering)
- Word Finding
- Motor Speech (e.g. dysarthria, apraxia)
- Processing Information
- Verbal Reasoning
- Problem Solving
- Social Communication
Anderson Therapy Services works with parents, educators, Jordan’s Principle case managers, as well as health directors to ensure comprehensive client care. Our services cater to the needs of the child and their family. As a result, therapy sessions range in length, frequency, and duration. Sessions are tailored to your child’s age and interests and will also include a strong parental training component. We pride ourselves on providing engaging services that best meet the needs of the child.
Our therapy services for Indigenous/First Nations, Intuit and Métis communities can be accessed in remote areas using our online videoconferencing technology as well as on-site visits. We will always include parents, caregivers, and paraprofessionals in the treatment plan and provide them with hands-on training that will further the child’s development.
